Ode to 2016

Another year passes by
Pretty paintings by my hand and another's
Too much sadness, it made us cry
Marked by death, a sister's and a mother's

Not all was sadness some good times were had
Yummy Greek food and Swamp Cabbage
A Hippo at Homasassa, Johnny Appleseed, Anthony Mad
And watching Spud walk across the college stage

I wished to write more day by day
About things within this year
But things got in the way
Surgeries and hospital stays, from my writing they would steer

2017 will be a year of catch up
And new things to write about
I am a gal of "half-full" cup
I choose to believe more happy than sad will be next year's route
